Relieve pressure on pinched nerves and reduce disc herniation.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Sometimes used to treat spinal injuries without surgery.
Decompression machines use motorized traction to gently stretch the spine. By doing so, the therapy changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc.
Decompression therapy is often utilized for:
- Lumbar or cervical disc herniations
- Degenerative disc disease
- Posterior facet syndrome (worn spinal joints)
- Spinal stenosis
Some patients have reported pain relief after undergoing spinal decompression therapy. It is believed to enhance the healing response by drawing nutrients into the disc, promoting blood flow, and creating an environment conducive to healing.
